2. There is just something about Professor Wolff. He can explain the most complicated financial issue

 

with common language so most anyone can understand it - even me. Unlike most economists who like to use the lingo of financial institutions in order to obfuscate and sound impressive. The professor is concerned about getting information and ideas across to people and he makes it interesting.

3. That's why I enjoy listening to him & want to share. He makes economics enjoyable, and ties it all

together, from history to present day, and we come away with understanding the big picture.
We need his voice at this time. He has often said, it is not about his voice suddenly becoming popular, it is about the message.

We know what we live, but did we ever truly understand where every social issue comes together, and the sheer global magnitude of the same problem? When you get that, you simply can't follow the same cheerleading path of the left vs. right, two party system here at home, you just can't applaud or accept corporate candidates.

4. Glad that Wolff is getting a larger audience.

Capitalism IS dying--a rather tedious, and painful death. There are those smong us who've long known that capitalism is antithetical to democracy. More people need to "know" this--viscerally.

A Storm is Coming, indeed.
